Admissions into Reception for September 2021

Parents can apply for a place at the Academy by naming it as a preference on the local authorities’ Common Application Form (CAF).  You will receive information about applying from your child's nursery, pre-school setting, or your local authority (council), in November.  If you do not receive this information, please contact your local authority’s admissions department.

More information about the primary school application process will be available on the following webpage from mid-November:  https://www.bradford.gov.uk/ed...

If you are applying for a place at the Academy under the 'Exceptional medical or social need' or 'Children of staff' oversubscription criteria, please follow the instructions in the guidance document, which can be found in the Downloads section below.

The Academy receives many more applications than there are places available.  Places will be filled in line with the oversubscription criteria stated in the Admissions and Appeals Policy (available from the Downloads section below).  Below is a chart showing the number of applications there were last year and how many places were allocated in each criteria.

In-Year admissions

Dixons Allerton Academy is a very popular school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if a child leaves the year group, which does not happen very often.

Where vacancies do occur, places are decided by applying our oversubscription criteria (see In-Year Guidance document below).

Should you wish to add your child to the waiting list, please telephone or write to the Admissions via e-mail or letter (contact details are given below) with the following information; you may also wish to include the reason for application.

  • Child’s full name, date of birth, present school and home address
  • Name of parent/carer
  • Address of parent/carer, if different to the child's address
  • Contact telephone number
